We are excited to partner with faculty across the UM campuses who would like to use the Digistar Planetarium for their own classes, conferences, or outreach. The Digistar projector provides a powerful, programmable, highly versatile system whose possible applications are limited only by one's imagination!
Here are a few ideas:
- Star patterns and sky lore of different cultures
- Observing the sky from historically important locations at different points in time - past, present, or future
- An ability to fly above and around local terrain at different locations on Earth and (at a lower resolution) on other planets.
- An immersive experience of visualizing data sets on a sphere. For example- NOAA’s Science on a Sphere offers a database of animated images of atmospheric and geophysical datasets.
